White Beach

White beach is a sea fishing venue on the North East coast of Anglesey. It is known among anglers as an area with quite varied fishing, its also a decent Mackerel bashing spot in summer.

The ground you are fishing on is mixed, sand and rough ground, the rougher areas can be a little tackle hungry at times. That said you have to be in it to win it and tackle losses are all part of fishing. Try to limit this by using rotten bottoms on your rigs. The two headlands are the best spots to fish as they already allow you to fish into deeper water. A good cast will put you into a good depth, the easterly headland has the edge here but both can fish well.

As normal with this type of mark you can use drop shot or baited feather / Sabaki’s down the sides if the fishing is slow. You can easily pick up Wrasse and Pollock, it can be a struggle though in Winter. Good footwear is a must particularly on the Eastern headland, the closest to the car park is not too bad. Its fine enough when its dry but wet conditions make it slippy. Day time fishing is decent but White Beach fishing seems to pick up at night time as the fish move in, if possible do not fish this mark alone.

Finding the car park for White Beach ( Traeth Gwyn ) is easy enough however during summer it can be a pain. There is enough parking for around 8-9 cars if people park well, the issue can be the road down. Its basically a single track road for nearly 3/4 of a mile with 1 passing spot, in summer it can cause problems with tourists in the area. Someone has to reverse and its a long way backwards, I’ve been really lucky so far though.

I honestly haven’t fished this venue much so am not fully aware of the cleanest areas for bottom fishing. I’ll try and get a few more sessions in and update the page accordingly.
